Re: What are you painting?(or converting)?

I've put my WoSS project on hold pending the arrival (at a lively canter) of the various Strelets cavalry sets that we have had sight of in the last few weeks.

So...it's nothing Strelets at present I'm afraid. Since the summer I have been amassing figures for a Thirty Years War project, and I have taken the decision not to start painting any of these until all are ready for painting...which sounds a bit like a strange statement, but underlies the fact that some 75% of the figures (Revell, ACTA, Zvezda and a few Mars) are converted to a greater or lesser extent. This might be a head-swap or something more complicated. The collection runs to 600 infantry and 200+ cavalry plus numerous guns and crews: it may also feature a full scale 17th century baggage park as well. The forces are Swedish/Protestant and Imperial for the early 1630s. So the converting/preparing/priming process is all taking some time.

And in between UK lockdowns I have also had surgery on both eyes, which has slowed the process a bit!

Results will hopefully start to be posed on Bennos towards the end of this year/early 2021....

By which time of course Strelets may have their WoSS cavalry sets out. Happy days!

Have a good weekend.:slightly_smiling_face:

Re: What are you painting?(or converting)?

Long term 1066, I've completed Strelets big boxes and just finished Tumbling Dice Vikings plus the usual suspects so for this lockdown its TD Anglo Saxons.
As I write its Italeri Gladiators as a companion set to Orion Gladiators. Once finished, this week I'll be onto the Arena. With all the acts including animals, chariots, martyrs and fighters I'll be able to supply a main feature and full supporting programme. I could do with an audience (any suggestions).
So many soldiers, so little time..

Re: What are you painting?

Trying to get a range of Commonwealth carriers - attempting on and off (struggling!) to convert a PSC universal carrier to a Windsor carrier. Need to finish off painting my strelet heavy WW1 howitzer.

World at War A9 and A9CS have just been completed so could really do with some BEF figures or early WW2 Italian campaign figures would be welcomed from Strelet to go with them!

Re: What are you painting?

I love how different everyone's projects are. and detailed, and esoteric!
